    Auto Change Grid Head Locations per View?

    In my industry the exterior of the building in plan views are always down on a view (sheet view) or to the left in a section view. I'm pondering what I spend a lot of time doing in my work life and one of the things that I have to do constantly is, after creating a view, say a north facing view that is facing up in the project, I rotate the view 180º so the exterior is now down facing and that's my sheet view. The issue is that the grid heads in that plan view always change from being at the top of the grid line to the bottom so I have to manually select the grid line, uncheck the box at the bottom and check the box at the top for every grid line across the view because grid heads at the top of grid lines is a standard in my industry. PITA. If I were still in Acad I'd write a LISP routine to do this automatically but Acad is left way behind so I'm wondering how to do this automatically in Revit on a per view basis. I know how to do it project wide but that's not an option. What about Dynamo? Maybe a possibility?? This is specifically what I'm talking about

    I can't see the image on my iPhone (damn Adobe Flash). Can you upload an image? Think I know what you're after and I believe Dynamo can hook you up.

      There is a post on the dynamobim forum. But you will have to edit both the python and dynamo script to make it work.

            Bump! If this thread should be in the Dynamo forum I'll move it

              You were in 2015 recently for a project. Are you still? The API wasn't open to this until 2016. Send me a message tomorrow as a reminder and I'll dig into it.

                Greg, all of my current projects are in R2017 so that's a good thing.

                  I actually went to look in to this yesterday, but the Bakery package used in that thread appears a bit sketchy, about how it installs... So i had to bail.

                    I couldn't even find the custom nodes required by that Dynamo script with a Google or Dynamo search...
